by wnc on Oct 11, 2002 Vehicle: 1990 Hyundai Sonata GLS V6 4dr Sedan
This was my parents car. It only has
89000 miles on it. I use it to commute
~90 mostly highway miles daily. It
makes an OK commuter car. It had a
defective torque converter that was
replaced under warrenty. It has a
problem with the ignition switch.
Installed a push button to bypass the
ignition switch. It is hesitant to
start. The air vents are cheesy and
they have fallen part. The air
conditioner still works but the outside
air vent is now jammed open. A water
leak has rusted the AC blower fan. Put
some oil in it to quiet it down for
now. On humid days the windows can fog
up easily. DO NOT BUY UNLESS YOU KNOW
THE CAR'S COMPLETE HISTORY.

This car has always started for me and
has been reliable. But for some reason
the engine has become a OIL BURNER. I
feel that this pre-mature for a car
that only has 93000 miles. Perhaps the
4 CYL engine was not appropiate for the
Sonata. The power windows don't
operate very well.
GLS gets new grille, upholstery and tinted glass. A V6 was added early in the model year. Premium sound and leather interior are offered for the first time. Automatic transmission gets an available power/normal shift selector.
